Lake Placid's 10-17-83 Sugaree is a killer

It's the opener. This one is highly charged, very powerful, and played with contained energy right at the start. Every time I listen to this track, it sounds like every note is played as though they're recording it "live" in the studio - no overdubbing. The band ebbs and flows as a single unit behind Jerry on all 3 solos - no strays, it's flawless. It's very much unlike the one played on 12/28/79, or the May '77 extended Sugarees w/ Keith, for example.

I've also mentioned this before about the 10/17/83 show -- Listen to Bobby, at 5:00 into Good Lovin'. The band goes into an arranged interlude, and builds upon it, sounding reminiscent of Lovelight.

"I wanna tell ya all about it now.
'cause we gotta make it work some how.
I don't have to tell you what it's like these days.
Sometimes you can't see shit through the smoke and the haze.
You gotta have good lovin'."

Good Lovin' builds brilliantly from there. Listen to what Bobby is saying and what he sings next. The band is standing up for our environment and mother Earth. Sustainable life on Earth is for all of us. They take this theme into the crescendo of Good Lovin'. It's the closing tune for the concert. And then, they come back out and do a tasty encore playing "Revolution". It appears to me they are rebelling against the early Reagan years and blowing off some serious steam here.

On the other hand, maybe Jer, Weir and The Grateful Dead family were/are and always will be the biggest PR-stunt in history?

Hunter Seamon's matrix sounds great

No football for me. It's sunny and beautiful here in Ft Collins today. The high for the day last Sat was a frosty 25 degrees. I'll be outdoors today. I just met this cool 6-year-old kid named Falcon ...

Speaking of PR-stunts, Falcon and I just fished this really awesome helium balloon kit out of the dumpster located behind the Larimer County Sheriff's place here in town. Falcon's dad will be doing a live shot about us flying this balloon on CNN all day today. The live Football coverage on TV will be interrupted and cancelled ...

Hmmm, you are "collecting" quartets of Forumites? Interesting concept.

CLIFF will be heartened to know that I didn't make that grade...

However, I must point out, in spite of all your protests, skies, you used the term "...our own ghost of pig..." below, implying you happily view yourself as a full fledged member of the group here, eh? EH?!

I suppose a real troll would never do that...but are sure you didn't just slip up there? Do you really want to join CLIFF, Rob, and me, and all the others?

(not to break up the chain of you alls pleasantries, I’m stepping in here with this reply to Monte’s post.)

1983 found me in Louisiana working as a chef. Having seen every NY area show while in school the previous two years, and having worked as an intern at the Lake Placid Hilton, I could not let this show pass me by. I spent more money to get to this show than I think I spent on gas money for entire tours, and it was one of only two shows I saw this year – the other was Austin TX. Sure glad I went.

Yeah didn’t mean that - an awkward attempt to keep the thread in order.
Since I’ve got you on the line, here’s a recipe for some haute cuisine…
Place one whole frog into a
Bucket of moonbeams
Add a pinch of reviving salts
Steam over a kettle in a sauna
Warning: don’t inhale the vapors….
and please accept my apologies for this lame post.

Sorry WT I am beginning to think that since Skies is in France she may have succomed to their surrendering ways and become submissive to the passionate ways of the boondock redneck peckerwood.
